Juan C. Correa


I received a Ph.D. in 2015 under the supervision of professor Klaus Jaffe at Universidad Simón Bolívar in Caracas, Venezuela. In my thesis, I developed an agent-based model to estimate the impact of motorcycle lane-sharing on the behavior of road users (a published paper is available here).

Nowadays, I work in Bogotá as a scientific researcher and lecturer in the graduate program of consumer psychology at Fundación Universitaria Konrad Lorenz and as a visiting professor at the faculty of Economic Sciences of Universidad Nacional de Colombia. 

I love to study sensitive topics of everyday life. Especially those that we can tackle with available data and from an Interdisciplinary approach (i.e., using different theoretical and methodological frameworks). I have a wide variety of academic interests including Complexity and Social Complex Systems, Psychology of Corruption, Ideological Consumerism, Consumer Psychology, Analysis of Natural Language in Politics, Urban Mobility, and Urban Traffic. I also enjoy studying new research methods and techniques such as reproducible research, structural equation modeling, Agent-based simulations, Data and Text Mining, Web Scraping (through R or Python), Montecarlo Simulations, and the family of Multiple Regression Models (e.g., Kernel, Linear, Logistic, Probit, Logit). More recently, I am studying networks science to enhance my theoretical and methodological background.
